Cross-layer Networking for Peer Databases over Wireless Ad-Hoc Communities
— Recent advances in wireless technology as well as in electronics industry have given rise to the widespread of wireless ad-hoc networking. Expanding data-centric applications to wireless ad-hoc networks has become a hot issue. Network functions must be carefully designed to meet the application requirements and at the same time economize on the limited resources of wireless environments. In this context, there is a growing consensus among scientists on the necessity of crosslayer protocol design. In this paper we propose a new routing and transport mechanism for wireless ad-hoc networks that incorporates application layer specifics in order to support both traditional and data-centric communications and at the same time optimizes the management of scarce network resources. The proposed methodology is evaluated through extended simulations and is proved suitable for wireless mobile environments.
